Interesting - I'd be looking at pairing with some R9100 calipers so the caliper clearance shouldn't be much of an issue. Seems like it might be a case of suck it and see.

I ran both Ultegra 6800 and DA9000 on my Allez DSW. My recollection was that the DA calipers had a little more clearance.

Anyone know about 28mm tyre clearance on the 2013-2015 DSW model (the pre-Sprint version)? Currently looking at one second-hand and wondering what the biggest tyres it can handle are.
28s will fit fine, I'm currently rebuilding an S-Works Allex 2015 and have 28s fitted on Roval CLX 32s (21mm internal width I believe) and there is still a good amount of clearance.

After many years of wanting one, i finally scratched the itch and bought myself an Allez S-Works! it came with the Roval CLX 40s which I'll use until I can find a decent set of CLX32s. Groupset is Ultegra 6800 which will all be sold on, bike is already totally stripped, ready for my next restomod project - will probably go SRAM eTap and Alpinist route...

Build is finished, 6.7kgs ready to ride, I wasnt even aiming at a weenie build!!!

Spec is mostly SRAM Red eTap 12 speed, apart from the chainring which is from the Force series, as I preferred the black look to the silver. Other parts are S-Works saddle, bars and stem (managed to find a near new period correct one) along with Roval CLX 32's (rear wheel is brand new!) with Ti skewers and a Roval Alpinist seat post. A Ceramic speed (I went all in!) BB and Look Keo Carbon Ceramic Ti pedals completes the build.

Cant wait to ride this once the weather picks up. Be interesting to see how it rides with wider rims, tyres and TPU tubes compared to what I remember.

Hot damn - that's an extremely nice build! Great stuff. The black chainrings were a great choice. Hope it rides as good as it looks!

Thanks for the comments. I used to have a DSW Allez many years ago, was a great bike, this should be even better to ride.

I was finally able to get my hands on the Roval Rapide Cockpit in 380x115 and got it mounted up on my Allez. Because the Allez previously had a Tarmac SL7 stem on it with the small stack height, I lost the 10mm spacer under the stem and had to slam the cockpit. I was a little bit worried how going more aggressive might work out, but I did 77 miles on the bike this morning and we weren't exactly taking it easy and it seemed fine.

Quick note... the computer mount in the picture is the K-edge mount that i originally had on my Roval Rapide handlebar/Tarmac SL7 stem setup... I learned that mount is NOT compatible with the cockpit.. the actual mount angle and bolt length configuration resulted in the bolt only hanging on by like 3 threads. It came loose a number of times. I swapped the included Barfly mount on and its been solid.
